Some of the reasons are due to limited water resources; environmental factors (drought period and monsoon) shut the island for several months, location (its long distance from mainland) and inhabitants’ lack of knowledge of growing and using vegetables and water use efficiency. In recent years, Socotri women are solely active in gardening for home use and selling limited surplus products.
